Real Madrid to include Coentrao in offer for Tottenham star Bale

Real Madrid are preparing a swap offer for Tottenham star Gareth Bale. The People says Real Madrid will use Fabio Coentrao as bait in their bid to sign Bale next summer.

Spurs were keen on him in the summer when it became clear Modric was on his way to Madrid but Real wouldn't do business. Now, though, Mourinho would let him go to get Bale.

Real hope that a deal worth around £30million - £12m of which would be made up by Coentrao - will be enough to convince Villas-Boas and chairman Daniel Levy to part with the Welshman.
